France’s Julien Faure stretches the boundaries of the art of weaving ribbons. Discover new leather aspects and an in-house solution for fray-proof labels.
For winter 2019/20, ribbon-maker Julien Faure is bursting with precise, inventive effects to give a new look to its famous woven jacquard ribbons.
Leather aspects are to be unveiled for the first time at Blossom Première Vision. Velvet ribbons with satin backing and others with the look of soft straps are all part of the renewed line-up. These luxury products are intended to ornament anything and everything a person can wear: hats, shoes, leather goods, watches and more. With a 150-year history weaving luxury materials, Julien Faure has over the years developed its own shuttle looms with expanded capacities, as well as its own CAD software. The offer of fray-proof woven silk labels illustrates the company’s taste for subtle fine-tuning.
Available in an array of bright colours (green, pink, yellow, rainbow) the winter collection features a wide range: plains in grosgrain, in taffeta, silk satin and mixed yarns as well as semi-plains with simple mini-motifs and stripes. One category presents fringed ribbons with brocade and transparent effects worked on light organza grounds, along with wide ribbons with very fine motifs and raised effects. Finally, the Vintage family employs thick yarns to give archival products an embroidery aspect.
